Pura Vida

Last week I needed something to post about so I threw some pictures of Brazil on my page and didn't think much of it.  But they turned out to be wildly popular.  I woke up on Saturday morning -- my birthday, by the way -- to see that they had been mentioned and shared within the Blogoverse.  Within a few hours they had several hundred hits, equivalent to what my best posts get in a few days and my regular posts get in, well, let's just say  a long time.  It was a HUGE honor!  I mean, I like my pictures, sure... but to know others liked them as well, it totally made my day.  As lame as this is going to sound, it really was the best present on my birthday.  Sappy and lame?  Maybe.  True?  Absolutely.

Obrigada, Danielle e Rachel!

I know today's pictures are not going to be as wildly popular because I do not have strong ties to the Costa Rican world like I do within the Brazilian world, but I just stumbled across these pictures while looking for the actual food ones I need to post about and decided to share these.  They are not seeking fame or glory, they are just wanting a place to be seen.  Enjoy a glimpse into Costa Rica while I go hunt for those Apricot and Walnut Stuffing pictures :)






















(These pictures were taken in La Fortuna, Tamarindo, and Manuel Antonio in Costa Rica last summer on our vacation.  What an AMAZING place.  If you have the chance to go, DO IT!)

    1. Dude, the moths are awesome. They look like butterflies, and who doesn't love butterflies??? (However I think I remember reading about you and moths... hmm...)

      Thank you for helping make a wonderful birthday surprise and you didn't even know it! SCORE!

    1. We did go there, Britt! It was just last summer and I never posted the pictures. What can I say... I am a little slow sometimes! :) You should definitely go if you ever have the chance. It is a wonderful wonderful place. I'm going to even go out on a limb and admit my husband I declare it to be our favorite country in the world to visit.

    1. I can imagine! I feel the same way when I see pictures of Palau, where I lived for a bit. I will tell you, Sarah... Costa Rica is an easy place to fall in love with. I would love to live in CR for a bit, but I think any overseas living will have to be done in Brazil -- not that I am complaining!
